At my weaving retreat (Fiber Daze – FB), we moved to different looms to make different pattern samples.
Some looms have four, six, or eight treadles or shafts.
On an eight-shaft loom, I found myself forming musical intervals according to the treading pattern.
1-3-5-7, 2-4-6-8-, 1-3-7, 2-6-8, etc.
Once I got the hand of it, I made a successful “Twill and Huck” pattern.
It didn’t make what I would call a true melody, but the intervals are still playing out in my mind.
